Very nice art. Good characters and a decent story... It's entertaining. Hardly the best at that it does, but it makes you smile at times despite the clichés. smile

Either way, I recommend it.

I've gotta say, I didn't give this series enough credit when I first read it. After the first two volumes, I thought it was just an excuse to draw naked women fighting ugly muscle bound freaks. Great art and a bit of humor but not much else. Then came volume three and a rough plot started developing around Motoko and her personalities. Since then its been a strong balance of action, drama and comedy.

Be warned though, more than a few characters, situations and story arcs are just out there in terms of believability. Suspend it and this is a great read. Don't and large chunks of this story are just plain silly. It may go without saying but it is particularly difficult in this case because the backdrop to the story grounded in a very realistic environment with normal people drawn exceptionally well.

Just go to show there's never can account for taste.

This manga is very noteworthy in many aspects. The multiple personalities is quite rare to see in manga, and it seem quite deep. Some science parts seem too unbelievable, but then it's manga, suspension of disbelief is a requirement.

The two most interesting aspects are characters and humours. Our hero is a weak boy who grew up in the environment of hero anime, ie typical boy. Still, his character is quite deep and can attract our attentions. the four personalities of the girl are very diverse and distintive. Also, the same can be said for all the other characters. Even the big fat housewife mother of our hero is very interesting in her own right, which tell us something about all of them.

The humour in this manga is dry, sometimes too dark, but always funny in a twisted way. i think a lot of readers who skim ahead got turn off by this. Shrug! Jump ahead and fall into a hole, that's the fact of life for you.

Fact is, this manga is a rare kind. you dont find them much, so dont skip it.

*purely subjective*
So, just to see what I was getting myself into, I read all of chapter 1, and chapter 40 from page 30 on. I don't think I'll be reading this series.

It seemed pretty cool after reading the first chapter, but what happens in Ch 40 was probably the worst thing the mangaka could have done, ignoring the circumstances (since I didn't pay attention to that). As a male, he should be ashamed; I got the distinct impression that he was a masochist >_>
Well, girls and masochists everywhere will be laughing, lolpwnd!, while I will stay the hell away. If you're really intent on reading the whole series, skip the latter part of Chapter 40 if you're squeamish, or get irritated when you witness carelessly....I don't know how to put in the spoiler text, so I'll end it here. It will save you a lot of heartache. (mad propz to LeviathanZr6 for the heads-up)

If you're all about some gratuitous boobs, panty shots, and nudity, this may be your cup of tea. I find that kind of stuff to be boring in general. If its got something to do with the plot, however (only one I can think about is the lolable Yuria 100 Shiki), its not so bad. So, those are my two cents, or something like that.

In mangas, I like plot, 3d characters who aren't all pathetic, some lulz, and good artwork. This manga seems to fit these criteria, so I'd say go for it, keeping my warning in mind.

At the beginning we have the male protagonist who isn't the best looking guy, nor the strongest, but he has a sense of justice and is kind. Though he is practically useless in a fight (that changes later on) he tries anyway, which usually results in a large amount of injury (that unlike other manga doesn't heal right away).
Likable characters, great art, and a nice helping of ecchi/fanservice make this a VERY nice read!

First off the main character is a complete loser/otaku who cant fight and doesnt have good looks. Second, the girl he gets of course is a sexy hot martial artist who just happens to meet him. Third, the main character doesnt even try to get stronger, but just cries and gets beaten to a pulp while his girlfriend has to save him. Even tho i said all of this it is still a great manga. It uses some really common plots, but the author does a nice job presenting it. Now that i think about it, Kenichi is especially like this. except this more about boobs and panty shots and kenichi is more about fighting and martial arts.

Nice read if you like lots of fanservice

It tries a unique approach on a classic cliche of mixing martial arts and boobs, and succeeds simply by being ridiculous and simple. Of course, it won't attract normal people the likes of you and me.

I belive everyone will agree with me that on chapter 40 what Hibiki did to the glasses bad-guy was a little too much, and that the last part was just downright cruel. I was torn between wincing and protecting my crotch and laughing my ass off.

Although I despise ecchi, I just LOVE this series so very much. (Guhhh bigrazz )
I love how the main character has multiple split personalities, each very interesting on their own, the strong kick-ass female characters, the logical explanations for the psychological aspect and the pleasant atmosphere in general. And although many people complained of the main male lead of being weak physically, he's actually a very strong person inside.I like how he's not afraid to stand Not to mention, it is rare to find a shounen manga where the guy is so understanding and caring to the girl.
Heck, I even enjoy the fighting scenes to the point I even look forward to them. laugh cry
